You will learn how various pre-employment testing strategies can add value, accuracy and predictive power to your selection process. 

A candidate's objective is to get a job. This means creating the best impression possible, occasionally at the expense of total transparency. Your objective is to hire the best employee, which means gathering accurate information to predict whether the candidate can do the job, will do the job and will do the job well. This session will dissect skills testing, integrity testing, personality testing and intelligence testing—and show how to maximize the value of each. This session will:

·         Help you learn about the value of various types of testing and what each method can and can't predict.

·         Discuss how testing complements and supplements interviews and other screening procedures.

·         Explore where in the selection process each type of testing offers the most value.

·         Map various testing approaches to desired outcomes and key metrics, and explore how return on investment
          might be calculated.
